7 Great Bites and Sips From Newport Folk Festival 2012

Ah, the glories of summer: barbecues by the dozen, armfuls of perfect tomatoes, ice cream galore... and it's peak music festival season! This weekend, we jammed out at the Newport Folk Festival. And in between soaking up Alabama Shakes and Jackson Browne (er, plus 25 gallons of rainwater), we searched for some serious food.

Choosing lunch was almost as stressful as realizing we couldn't be at three stages at once (The Head and the Heart! vs Of Monsters and Men! vs Tune-Yards!)—but such challenges are ones we'll gladly take on.

Newport Storms Beer was the official beer of the festival.

While NFF is no Outside Lands, it was appropriately varied to fit all of our hunger pangs. From classics like Ben & Jerry's to trendier farm-fresh tacos, check out our favorite bites and sips >>
